Description Andrew Hecox 2008-01-16 16:28:11 EST
chapter 31 of the RHEL 5.1 install guide includes directions for setting up a
pxe server using system-config-netboot. system-config-netboot is not in RHEL5.
Comment 1 Andrew Hecox 2008-01-16 16:29:17 EST
filed against wrong component -- refiling. 
Comment 2 Don Domingo 2008-01-20 20:07:41 EST

closing bug. thanks!
Comment 3 Andrew Hecox 2008-01-21 13:07:27 EST
Hey Don,

Thanks, but I think the issue is a bit deeper -- the whole chapter is written
around tools provided by that package. pxeos, pxeboot, etc... are not in RHEL5.
Sections 31.4-7 are fine, but I'm not sure they have any utility without the
first 4 sections since they're talking about how to utilize profiles setup via
the netboot tools.

My suggestion would be to drop the chapter until someone has time to develop
comparable directions for the direct management of the initrd and kernel image
files, but ymmv.

system-config-netboot was indeed included again in 5.2, as anticipated.
